Local Gold and Silver Dealers in Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles – the City of Angels - is the largest and most influential city in California, with a cultural, financial, and commercial reach that extends globally. The city played host to the Summer Olympic Games in 1932 and 1984 and will do so again in 2028. It is ranked sixth (6th) in the Global Cities Index and ninth (9th) in the Global Economic Power Index. If Los Angeles were a country, its economy would be bigger than that of Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, or Sweden.

Popularly known as LA, it is the second most populous city in the U.S., after New York City, with around 4 million residents. Famous for Hollywood, the city’s popular label of LA is much less of a mouthful than the original: “El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora Reina de los Angeles sobre el Rio Porciuncula.” (The Town of Our Lady Queen of the Angels on the Porciuncula River.)

Los Angeles, which covers an area of about 463 square miles, is a city on the move in many ways. Its location on a tectonic plate means the city shifts about one-quarter of an inch (6.3 millimeters) to the east every year.

Sales Tax on Gold and Silver in Los Angeles

In the City of Los Angeles, total sales and use taxes amount to 9%. Within the County of Los Angeles, they are slightly less, at 8.75%. The state taxes are actually 7.25%, so the differences go into city or county coffers.

Coins used as a medium of exchange are not subject to tax, even though the exchange value may not equal the face value, i.e., the value given for a dollar coin could be more or less than 100 cents in a purchase transaction. However, if the transaction in coins takes place as an investment or as an acquisition of collector’s items, it will be subject to tax.

In general, sales of gold and silver are subject to tax. However, bullion sales and sales of numismatic coins are exempt from both the sales tax and the use tax, provided the total market value sold in a single transaction is $1,500 or more, according to Article 7, Regulation 1599 of the California Sales and Use Tax Regulations.
